So far I am very pleased...
So far I am very pleased with this product. I used it to fill in between new legs added onto what was left of the original legs on an antique buffet that had for some reason or other been cut off years ago making the buffet into a very low credenza. The second time I used the wood filler, I repaired the top on one of my Grandmother's old small tables that the veneer on the table top had cracks in it. I mixed a small amount of the stain I was using on both projects into the putty, and then filled in the cracks and filled between the legs. You have to really look at the table top to find where the cracks were. Both blended very well. Am very satisfied. The table looks much better and the buffet is useable now because it is taller.

small size tube wood filler
I thought the wood filler worked pretty well on an oak cabinet I built, blending into the face grain after sanding and staining. Only three stars because as I squeezed the little tube to get the product flowing, it shot 2/3 of the contents across the shop. Subsequently bought the 16oz tub with a twist off lid makes application way more effective.

Poor Product
I have been looking for a stainable filler for some time now, and though I have not purchased this product from Rockler I have used it and found it is not what it is advertised to be. I have had no success staining it with Minwax and General Finish products (the latter my preferred finish) and needed to dig it out and start over. Don't waste your money.

Okay, it cost less. But, that is also what you get. I’ve tried MANY times to get this wood filler to work for me. It dries up way too fast, peals up with putty knife smoothing, is not easy to sand smooth and doesn’t except wood dyes or wood stains good at all. Try Wonderfill. Big Al.

Poor product
Used the filler on plywood wood. Wanted to leave natural color. This junk stained the wood badly. Not easy to apply as you must apply product far outside the edge of nail hole or seam.......Minwax has some very nice stain and this product will ruin your project. Wastes of time and money

Won't accept stain. I thought it...
Won't accept stain. I thought it might be due to the use of oil based stain but according to the product this shouldn't have been an issue. It must be due to the fact I didn-t use Minwax stain, but I'm not buying that argument.

I used the product on a...
I used the product on a bartop to fill brad nail holes. It looks worse now than if I would of if i left the holes as they were. Since it was made by the same company that makes the stain I used I figure it would be a safe bet, boy was I wrong. This product is a joke and ruined a nice looking bar.

Does anyone know of a wood filler that really is stainable
Ron k on Feb 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have used Minwax Strainable wood filler a number of times and it has worked with many tyrpes of wood. Of course I purchased it at Rocklers
Why can’t this be used on floors?
Michaelrepetto on Feb 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Floors can expand and contract and it could get squeezed up out of the gap and broken off
Used the wood filler and stained wood can see the spots where I used the wood filler?
